United’s Shot Is Blocked By Vote – The Post
I cannot say that I am shocked by this:
The Prince George’s County Council probably killed D.C. United’s planned move to the county yesterday, voting to oppose legislation that would have authorized the state to study construction of a professional soccer stadium.
I am not a big soccer fan, but I am glad DCU is around and hope they stay. United has a storng and passionate following and has four championships. Steve Goff, The Post‘s soccer writer is hinting that a move to Missouri, presumably St. Louis, could happen.
Maybe Dan Snyder could work something out with DCU until a soccer facility could be built. FedEx Field isn’t exactly busy in the summer time. This team is too good a popular for a solution to be not be found. I want them to be around in case my son is a soccer fan.
